Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
I wanted high quality audio but couldn't afford anything. Therefore I set about building things myself. Still not cheap, but I've got what might otherwise be a $10k rig but only cost me $700. And it is tailored to my listening preferences.
Wut? More complex? I'd think that some of the distros make using Linux easier than ever. For anyone else, there are plenty of distros out there that would suit your needs.
If you're a home user not much you can do aside from releasing and renewing your IP. I work for supporting a fast growing SaaS product and I've had to do my homework on this.
1. Make sure your edge firewall / router has a high Packets Per Second capability. A DDoS attack may not involve a lot of bandwidth but rather send a boatload of packets at you. Your edge network will need to process it all, and if it can't you start dropping packets for things you want and don't want.
2. Out bandwidth 'em. I've not tried it, but I'm interested in Akamai PLXrouted service. In a nutshell if you get a bandwidth attack you adjust your BGP routes to push traffic though Akamai, who can provide Terabits of shitfilter for you. DDoS zero, you win. Or cloud it, using Amazon EC2 as a filter with a bunch of proxy instances that self heal if they get knocked out.
It doesn't. That shit it cray cray.
Generally I have found the more expensive early generations of CFL and LED lamps last longer. The cheapie ones that come along later likely undergo minimal quality control, if any, and are made of poor quality components.
The Federal IT shops are a shitshow run by bottom feeding contractors who give zero feels. The Feds they support generally are paper pushers for whom computers are magical beings filled with little elves, and robots and give zero feels how it all works.
So yeah. Not hating. Just been there myself.
IPv6 sort of demands that you forget everything you know about IPv4. Once you get IPv6, you'll ask yourself why anybody still uses IPv4. For example.
There are more
You'll really want to use DNS.
I'm using IPv6 at home and work now and think its time is way overdue.
HR people who write these things often have _NO IDEA_ WHAT THEY ARE WRITING.
Not enough stupid? Lets do surge of stupid!
Whatever. Oracle. Pfffft.
Article's author lives in a bubble of fantasy of utopian communism. The reality is that parents who care enough are going to choose the best option for their kids if they can.
Some public schools are just shit, and a lifetime of effort cannot fix them.
My fucks given? None.
Take over right away. Don't let him do anything. Ask lots and lots of questions. Take notes.
1. Get da passwords. Verify them.
2. Support contracts.
3. "What are common problems"
4. "Can I get your email"
I absolutely agree. In a work environment where collaboration and communication are needed to reach an end goal, telework sucks. The latency and opportunity for misunderstanding are strong. I've been able to hash out more in an hour over a few pints than in several week over email or chat. Just saying. There's a lot to be said for hearing your peer's ideas and for being able to challenge each other in person. Email totally sucks ass, because it's not a conversation. It's one way.
Not to say that being the office is always awesome either. In an undisciplined office environment, constant interrupts can ruin productivity. If everyone respects each other and trusts them to get the job done then it can be cool.
